Milieu has a special way with making sounds unique to his style. abusing his drum lines with rigorous trips to and fro old, dusty, obsolete tape decks, sipping tea, petting cats, that sort of thing. Stray Trains is a warm and pleasant listen from a happily magical Milieu.

Beautiful, simple and emotive
Milieu's albums are all journeys through various moods and memories, and though they might be inspired by his specific thoughts, the listener will quickly rediscover their own memories while listening. "Stray Trains" is a perfectly paced EP of childlike melodies and familiar, if slightly unconventional sounds. Bright in tone and cleanly produced.
